The main reason I decided to put this clip in the PT forums is because of what he says at mark 3:30. Knee flexibility, which IMO is completely ignored by most. Everyone thinks hips or hamstrings when it comes to flexibility. Knees, they don't even blip on the radar until they go pop.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

I wish i could stretch like that. I have a groin strain in both sides now and can't seem to shift it. Stretching becomes too painful before i even get to the point of stretch.
Thanks for the vid

Sweet Jeebus! He pulls full lotus without using his hands and then puts his chest to his shins. Then, at the very end, he tops it off by going into full lotus from an upside down / tripod position. Very impressive.

Indeed. I've always had a bit of trouble getting knee flexibility to take, and this guy just explained why. Thanks much for the useful clip.

Yea we had that speech at the clinic in Houston. Good stuff. He fails to mention HIP flexibility which is what most of the stretches work.
Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

...And all this time, I thought his secret to flexibility was just smoking a lot of weed.

Watching this reminded me of how flexible I was when I was competing in TKD, so I dropped down and did a quick check, I can still get into Lotus, but not without my hands anymore. I can get one foot behind my head, but not both anymore. I can get almost into a full split, but not quite. I have been neglecting my stretching since I quit TKD. shame on me. I've now decided to re-implement my TKD stretching routine.

Is there such a thing as too much flexibility? Sure for gymnastics and such it is great, but maybe it is a detriment in the long run. A physiotherapist friend of mine had this opinion. She said a lot of gymnasts and others with extreme flexibility often suffer joint instability later in life.
Just wondering if others have an opinion on this...
